Makita upgrades Lithium-ion tool warranty to three years

Upgraded warranty applies to all lithium-ion tools, batteries and chargers.

Makita is upgrading to a Three-Year Limited Warranty for all Makita lithium-ion tools, batteries and chargers, as well as qualifying lithium-ion battery-powered accessories. This new 3-year limited warranty goes into effect October 1, 2015.

“Tool users are looking for solutions that help them solve problems and work more efficiently,” said Adam Livingston, Senior Product Manager, Cordless Tools. “With the world’s largest 18 volt lithium-ion cordless tool line-up and the industry’s fastest-charging 18V batteries, Makita is giving contractors more opportunities than ever to unplug the cord. Now, we’re backing up our expanding cordless line-up with an upgraded 3-year limited warranty that covers all lithium-ion tools, batteries and chargers.”

Upgraded Three-Year Limited Warranty
Under the new limited warranty, each Makita lithium-ion power tool, battery and charger is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of three years from the date of original purchase.

For users who purchased lithium-ion tools, batteries, and/or chargers prior to October 1, 2015, their purchases will be covered by the new 3 year limited warranty for 3 years from their date of purchase. The warranty covers all current and future Makita lithium-ion tools, batteries and chargers including 7.2V, 12V max, 18V, and 36V.
